The Mist

1 Mins read
The Mist by Ragnar Jonasson

The Mist is the final instalment of Ragnar Jonasson’s Dark Iceland series which tells the story of Hulda Hermansdottir, a police detective at the Reykjavik police force, in reverse chronology. It’s 1998 and 40-year-old Hulda is investigating the disappearance of Unnur, a 20-year old girl from Reykjavik. The case goes unsolved, but two months later an elderly couple is murdered on a farm in the remote eastern region of Iceland. Could there be a connection?

The Mist is loaded with atmosphere in a perfect blend of ominousness, claustrophobia and fear. Set in the midst of an Icelandic winter, Jonasson’s tightly and deceptively woven plot has maximum impact and will, at the same time, leave you sad to say goodbye to Hulda. Read our full review here.
